The short film below by Savannah College of Art and Design student Jason Rayner is one of the Cartoon Brew Student Film Fest finalist, and it’s great. The short film has a solid story, and a great look. Even though the film has a distinct CG look to it, that look never takes away from the underlying story, message and overall charm of the film. Modeling was done in the open source software Blender with animations being done in Maya and post in Nuke. The result is a very, very strong student film. Every time I see what students are turning out these days, it makes me want to go back to college.
